Hi I have a report with filter say Account.Name = 'Test Account', for Dynamic reference for different Accounts I created a URL like below


To use this in Lightning I need to replace pv0 to fv0 when I did this the URL encode takes space as + which is expected, but passes the Same to the Filter value.

for Example if Account Name is "Test Account" the filter value returns to be "Test+Account", because of this the report is not returning any result.

Please let me know if any of faced the same problem.

  • how are you forming the url? can you try using encodeURIComponent() function in your lightning controller function and try to pass the account name ? var url_val = "/one/one.app#/sObject/00Od0000004AYPFEA4/view?a:t=1495057260375&fv0="+encodeURIComponent(account_name);

Try substituting %2B with %20.

Looks like space is getting converted to + and + gets encoded as %2B. Instead of encoding just let the url convert the space to + and substitute + with space

/one/one.app#/sObject/00Od0000004AYPFEA4/view?fv0={!SUBSTITUTE(Account.Name, "%2B", "%20") }

I tested this and the URL resulted to:

  • No luck, i tried this erlier, now I have tried again, /one/one.app#/sObject/00Ow0000006qBDUEA2/view?fv0={!SUBSTITUTE('test Account',"%2B","%20")} still adding " +" even I replaced the %2B with + still no luck

  • yes it is a detail page link , heres how it looks, after loading properly, it substitues %2B since + is substituted. one/one.app#/sObject/00Ow0000006qBDUEA2/view?fv0=test%2BAccount
